I'm enjoying Our Zoo

Me to. A great story, surprised it's not been done before.

The last episode of Banshee was really naff.

 

That's the spirit.

I have been pleasantly surprised by 'Our Zoo'. I thought it might be maudlin 

it's helped by a strong cast including Anne Reid and Liz White(sigh)

As if that tasty bird would fancy the slap head. Ludicrous

Not just the slap head, but the nerdy toy shop owner

and Zoe is simply irreplaceable

I've seen it. It's pretty interesting. I enjoyed finding out about his show band days.

You find out extremely little about his life. It seems almost like he played guitar 24/7

I watched "Only Connect" for the first time ever today. The show itself was even more tedious than Brain of Britain used to be on R4 but it was strangely hypnotic watching the weirdo contestants.

One team was comprised of a group from a Dr Who online forum with a sub forum for Only Connect chat.

I half expected John Drake to be on.

Watched Cilla with Sheridan Smith. I thought it was quite good, the Beatles were well cast.

I thought the dialogue was a bit clunky

"hello you're in the Big three aren't you. Isn't that George Harrison over there?"

 

to be honest I'm finding it difficult to stop my aversion to MS Black from getting in the way of enjoying the show.

If this had been about a male singer, would they have chosen someone uglier than the original?

I love Only Connect.

I noticed, last night, that one question about countries speaking Portugese appeared in Only Connect and University Challenge immediately prior to it.

Yes I noticed that too.

 

There was also an Eddie Waring reference.  He retired about 35 years ago, and we're still not rid of that image!

I watched ELO playing a concert in Hyde Park on BBC iPlayer last night. Fantastic stuff. Good to see Jeff Lynne performing live again and sounding great. He seemed genuinely taken aback by the warmth of the reception he got from the crowd and how well the songs went down.
